Event Description: 

Master Naturalist Sonya Wulff will be holding a program highlighting Connecticut’s early wildflowers.  Follow several individual species of native wildflowers from bud to seed with images and information to help identify and appreciate the ecological role.  We’ll be taking a close look at their characteristics and strategies for reproducing at a time of year when winter conditions, unstable temperatures, and low pollinator numbers are the normal circumstances.

Sonya Wulff is a graduate of Goodwin’s Master Naturalist Class of 2016.  Part of her research during the Master Naturalist program was spent studying cycles of native spring wildflower communities for 6 months in central Connecticut. Sonya is also a volunteer for the CFPA as trail manager of Scovill Loop Trails and a CFPA Ramble guide.
